Subject: Murder and Mayhem...
Treasure, hidden passages, murder and mayhem...only thing missing is a ghost or two. Algy added even more fun this time out. Leo Carroll makes a great bad guy. Quite a change from Topper. Liked this entry in the Bulldog Drummond series very much.

Subject: Mistitled Entry
No, there are no "secret police" in this one, yet the producers chose to ignore the title of the book upon which it, supposedly, was based: "Temple Tower." I don't know why movie producers so often decide that an author's title for a story isn't good enough.

Wikipedia says that the movie uses flashbacks extensively, causing critics to find the film tiresome. I disagree on both points. There were no "flashbacks," per se, but dream sequences, and they were not used "extensively." Further, the dream sequences were relatively short and not at all tiresome.

I like movies with secret passages and chambers, and this one fits right in.

Btw, who would believe that Leo G. Carroll's character could overpower Bulldog Drummond in a straight-up fistfight?

Subject: John Howard Continues To Do Well as "Bulldog Drummond"
Another delightful movie in the "Bulldog Drummond" series with John Howard and Heather Angel. Please note that Leo Carroll (aka Leo G Carroll) plays a devious character in this film. Supporting cast is good. Note that John Barrymore is no longer in the cast. And, of course, the marriage between the two principal characters - on second thought, I better not give the conclusion away.

This is the Better copy of the two avaiable here on Internet Archive. Many Thanks to both. This flick is fulla caper & the chambers under the castle are worth waiting on...if just for some movie knowledge. 4 stars just because I love it, he he ...especially Algie..
